Kid Things

Who doesn't love a cool nursery or child's room!?! They have come a long way since I was a kid or even from the time of my children. A child's room is a sanctuary, or it should be. A place that reflects the child's personality.
I am all for letting a child decorate their room, no matter the colors or the decor, it should reflect who they are. I understand that is not going to happen when they are a baby or even a toddler, but as they grow up they should have complete say about the decor. 
And I confess, I have evolved in my thinking.:)

I have some things in my shop that are perfect decorating items for nurseries, child's, or teen bedrooms.
They will be listed below, so go check them out.

Color Your Room With Brass

 Don't you just love brass? It just fits anywhere, no matter how dressed up or dressed down, brass will always look at home.
I always see a ton of brass in home decor photos, of course, when I go searching for them, they have gone into hiding. I am still not feeling well enough to be at the computer for any length of time, so I did not look very long. 
Enjoy the eye candy!
And thanks so much for looking.


I am pretty sure that one can never have too many brass trays. There are a couple beautiful brass trays for sale in my Etsy shop. See below.

Decorating With Macrame



This will be a short post tonight. I have not felt well today, actually for a couple of weeks now. I'm struggling to do this much.
I made a lot of macrame when I was in my 20's and have enjoyed it coming back. Here are a few pics I found on Pinterest that are really cool. You can scroll on down to find what I have available in my shop.

Fun Things and Kid Things

Even though my kids are no longer at home, I still love looking at the fun things you can do with a nursery or kid's room. A child's room should be a magical place; where they can dream and let their imagination run wild. There should be lots of color and textures, lots of pillows and creative spaces where they can channel Telsa, Einstein, Van Gogh, Amelia Erhardt, Mark Twain, or whoever and wherever there little minds and hearts take them. 

Here are some creative, fun, and adorable rooms. Banners and Buntings are featured here, and if you need one, I have a couple listed in my Etsy Shop and I will post them below with links to where you can purchase them. And, if you need one with a different color scheme and different size, just message me through Etsy and let me know what you need and I'll get back to you on time for project and prices. 

Enjoy the eye candy below!

And every child (and adult) needs an outdoor playhouse. My dad built me a little house when I was a kid and it was so much fun. Lots of good memories.

If you're looking for a bunting/banner, check mine out. And if the these do not work for you, message me via Etsy and I'll be happy to work with you to make just what you need.
